  • I agree. It is not ideal, but I am sure that some of the invitees will show up. If my son got a one week notice to a birthday party and there was nothing planned that would intervene with our attendance we would definitely go.!

  • I think a week is enough, I always do two as well. Just don't be disappointed if anyone cannot make it.

  • A week will limit your attendance, but some guests are better than none.

  • The sooner the better. If you want people to come the more notice you give them the more likely they can make it. People are busy and if you wait till the last minute it's likely they may have plans.
